Golf: Tiger Woods 18th in Caribbean comeback

Tiger Woods plays four days of tournament golf in the Bahamas. From a purely physical perspective, the comeback seems to have been a success. The superstar already has a plan for the future.

Golf idol Tiger Woods completed his comeback in the Bahamas with an 18th place finish after an eight-month injury break.

However, the 47-year-old Californian needed a total of 288 strokes at his own tournament at the Albany Golf Club, 20 strokes more than the winner Scottie Scheffler (268). The world number one from the USA won ahead of Austria’s Ryder Cup player Sepp Straka (271) and the American Justin Thomas (272). 20 top golfers from the PGA Tour competed in Woods’ invitational tournament in the Caribbean.

Woods “still a little rusty”

But more important than the result for Woods is the knowledge that his body and the operated right foot survived the four strenuous days well. The tournament was the long-time world number one’s first competition after the injury-related retirement from the Masters in Augusta in April and the subsequent foot operation.

“I’m still a little rusty,” said Woods, who, as always, competed in the final round in a red shirt and black pants. “But it was a lot of fun to compete with the guys here again.” Woods’ plan is to play one tournament per month next year. That gives him enough time to regenerate between tournaments, he explained. In just under two weeks, Woods will compete with his now 14-year-old son Charlie at the PGA Tour family tournament in Orlando, Florida.
